Entrepeneurial and innovation skills for developing the new value chains of mobility, health and manufacturing

The project

The main objective of this project is to propose a model of Open Innovation in the educational field in order to stimulate interactions and intersections of key productive systems in the European area to sustainability:

Advanced mobility

Health and nutrition


HEI4Future develops programmes that address in a new, innovative and multi-disciplinary way the needs of higher education in these fields

The problem

With the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Agreement of Paris, the world agreed for the first time in history to act decisively and face the 2 most important challenges to which humanity faces today: achieving sustainable development and tackling the problem of climate change.
In addition, the economic situation of the entire world economy has been strongly affected since March 2020 by the health alarm caused by COVID-19, which poses important challenges regarding the production model, the social habits and concern about well-being and health.

The challenges

Achieving sustainable development.

Tackling the problem of climate change.

Solving COVID impact in production models, social habits and concern for well-being and health.

The solution

For all these, the project aims to carry out a set of activities to reinforce teaching in the field of emerging skills associated with the sustainability and mitigation of climate change hand in hand with new proposals for manufacturing, advanced mobility or health and nutrition to reduce the mismatch between supply and demand, designing and creating new programs that address in a new, innovative and multidisciplinary way the needs that exist in higher education around these fields. This provides a key holistic approach to the emergence of initiatives and the development of entrepreneurial mindsets in the EU.


To this end, the proposal includes a wide range of actions aimed at identifying the gap between the needs of the productive fabric and the existing training proposal, the design of more agile training models and content to support entrepreneurship and innovation, the promotion of the entrepreneurship, support for new business projects that may arise in HEIs, the creation of Communities of Practice to boost the flow of university-business communication, workshops for building work teams, direct support through networks of mentors or a mobility program to promote synergies and relationships between teams of entrepreneurs.

  • Connecting the gap between the productive fabric and the project´s training proposal

  • Designing agile training models to support entrepreneurship and innovation

  • Promoting entrepreneurship

  • Supporting new business projects

  • Creating communities of practice

  • Building work teams

  • Providing mentoring

  • Managing a mobility programme between teams of entrepreneurs

HEI4Future provides a key holistic approach to the emergence of initiatives and the development of entrepreneurial mindsets in the EU

This project is supported by EIT Urban Mobility, an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union. EIT Urban Mobility acts to accelerate positive change on mobility to make urban spaces more liveable. Learn more: eiturbanmobility.eu
